To reposition the company for productive and efficient services, the Management of Jos Electricity Distribution Plc has embarked on a massive promotion of staff just as it has created an additional four regions.

The Head, Corporate Communications, of the Company Dr Friday Adakole Elijah in a press statement noted that while making the disclosure last Thursday at the company’s Board room, the Managing Director, Engr Abdu Bello Mohammed also said that more staff have been recruited to beef up the existing gap stressing that the Management was doing all within its wisdom to boost the economic fortune of the company.

He explained that the management decided to promote or advance virtually all the staff that had stagnated since the inception of the company in 2013.

According to the Managing Director, ” We realized after painstaking research that a lot of staffers were demotivated due to lack of promotion or advancement”.

He explained further that, so many staff were denied promotion for upward of eight years stressing that the situation had contributed negatively to the performance of the company.

“It was obvious that staff were disenchanted with the situation and therefore exhibited a high premium of lackadaisical attitude to the revenue collection of the company by refusing to take ownership of their job roles”, he said.

Engr Mohammed was optimistic that with the elevation, the company’s fortune would improve tremendously.

He said that when things began to improve, all the critical stakeholders including the staff would have reasons to smile and be proud of working with the Jos Electricity Distribution Plc.
